Abstract : Nanoparticle metal powder having a controllable and narrow size distribution are by electrolessly plating a metal on the interior of a vesicle made of at least one polymerized phospholipid. Electroless plating may be accomplished by catalytic reduction of the metal ion or u.v. reduction of the metal ion.
